This study investigated age and gender influence on suicidal ideation among undergraduates in Ilorin Metropolis. A descriptive research design was used for this study. The participants of this study consisted of 250 randomly selected undergraduates from five faculties of Al-Hikmah University, Ilorin Nigeria. The suicidal Ideation Scale used by Roberts and Chen (1995) was adopted to collect the data. Two null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 critical region. The finding indicated that there were significant gender and age difference in the suicidal ideation of undergraduates in Ilorin Metropolis. The findings were discussed and necessary recommendations based on the findings of the study were highlighted. This includes the fact that intervention programmes for managing self-destructive ideation among undergraduates should take into cognizance the influence of age and gender.
